The Nordic EMBL Patnership for Molecular Medicine now offcially has a logo!

The logo is inspired by the shape of chromosomes. It displays four shapes, representing the four partners. They stand together, representing unity and partnership, and the curbed line represents the northern hemisphere. DANDRITE is the Danish parthership node of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine.

New publication from Anders Nykjær's group - Sortilin mediates vascular calcification via its recruitment into extracellular vesicles

Vascular calcification is a common feature of major cardiovascular diseases. Extracellular vesicles participate in the formation of microcalcifications that are implicated in atherosclerotic plaque rupture; however, the mechanisms that regulate formation of calcifying extracellular vesicles remain obscure. Here, we have demonstrated that sortilin…
